Emerging singer-songwriter Saffron A is back with her new EP, Resistance, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Based in Brantford Ontario, Saffron A is a rare artist who has refined her skills on the octave mandolin and mandocello. Her music sits where emotion and intellect intersect with lyrics inspired by divine poetry and sounds beaming with the raw honesty of Janis Ian, the phrasing of Joni Mitchell and diversity of Jack White. She paints deep, dark, verbal portraits with strokes of wit and authenticity that belie her years. In the past year, she has showcased at Folk Music Ontario, and embarked across the border to the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance.
“The songs in the Resistance EP are the most direct songs I’ve put out to date, with themes of of rage, systemic injustice and vulnerability,” she says. “I connect personal experiences of misogyny to greater ideas of social power and the Canadian justice system.”
